Refreshing pineapple-cucumber salad

Refreshing pineapple-cucumber salad

This refreshing pineapple-cucumber salad rich in vitamins and minerals, is especially suitable for hot summer days as a quick refreshment and snack in one, or as a side dish to meat recipes. If you are looking for something playful, colorful, and refreshing, try this healthy salad from pineapple and cucumber. Just looking at this dish will make you happy.

It is said that there is beauty in simplicity and I can confirm it with this simple, fast and healthy pineapple and cucumber salad, flavored with lemon and herbs. The distinctive taste of pineapple and the delicate taste of watery cucumber is exactly the right balance that you want in such a salad. You can use either mint or, for an even more untraditional taste, parsley (preferably fresh).

Prepare this fresh summer salad as a snack for work, as a healthy dessert when you get cravings for something sweet or as an unusual and light side dish to meat. Pineapple will get your blood flowing in your veins as it helps reduce blood clotting and dissolves sediments in your blood vessels. This is thanks to a substance called bromelain, which also helps burn fat. So this fresh pineapple-cucumber salad is low-calorie, low-fat, and also helps burn fat! And it takes only 10 minutes of peeling and slicing in the kitchen! Do you need any more reasons to try this healthy salad?
